Wild for Schools
A Foundation for Schoolyard HAbitats
The guiding principle of Wild for Schools is always, whenever possible, the full immersion of children and young people in nature for its therapeutic and educational benefits. Usually, in this case, "nature" will be re-created or replicated with the native plants of California. But whether "natural" or replicated, nature can become, in the words of one student, their "happy place."
(NOTE: This organization, a non-profit, is still in preliminary "thinking, talking, and planning" stages of development. More to come as we gain assistance, structure, people, and possible funding! But we have a name, a work-in-progress website, and lots of energy and experience. Leave your name with us and we'll get back to you, shortly. Thanks!-Mike)
